Misnaming products in store? Is it ok?

Hi!

I am working on my online store. I have a questions:

1. Is it alright to misname product name or not mention brand names in my store? For example I have a product that I know if a customer googles it's name, they'll find it on Aliexpress for a cheaper price. Can name my product with a name that won't give out the product if searched in google or amazon?

2. That said, if a product has a brand and model number, would it be ok to do that same and give it a custom name?

Most consumers will not go to aliexpress to buy a product. That being said, having your own unqiue name is always a good idea, ideally something that goes back to your own brand - just be aware of trademarks and copywrites.

Thanks! So if I am aware that selling fakes is illegal, that's why I am extra carefull not to sell brand name and instead looking for generic items for the most part and brands that are chinese based. How can I be more sure about not selling a trademarked item? Is there a website I can search for brand names to see their country of origin? For example there is this watch by North and when I am searching google for their website I am not finding any official websites. Does that mean it is a Chinese brand and I can be selling it?
